CHATHAM, N.J. -- Just Facts, a non-profit research and educational institute, has published a massive resource of facts about freedom of speech.

Through much of recorded history, governments have used their power to suppress criticism of themselves. In stark contrast, one of the defining principles of the U.S. is that citizens have a right to criticize the government and to speak about virtually everything

This new research shows why the founders of the U.S. included free speech in the Bill of Rights, how courts have ruled in such cases, and much more. Some examples of the topics covered include:

  • Purposes of Free Speech
  • Student Rights
  • Private Suppression in Public Venues
  • Offensive Speech
  • Calls for Violence
  • Intimidation
  • Private Property

The full research is available at
